    Nice shots...looks like high tide. I was there three weeks ago, it's a great place to shoot.

    Well you've had plenty of time to sort them out then

    Or are you still waiting for windoze 7 to start up?

    Very quick look through once, whitefoot wanted to see some and now I won't look at them again for a few weeks at least. (If I remember at all)

    I love the second one
    Great light.

    I was there four days ago, but not at that ungodly hour of the morning.
    I managed to get some penguins.

    Did you get some idea from those as to what the morning was like Rob?

    I don't look at photos for some time and it takes a lot longer before I'll do anything to them. How do you know what you like in a photo if all your looking at is processed? How do you get a feeling or understanding of the place if you bump all the slider's. The most important one being the understanding for me. I could go crazy in pp as soon as I got home, but how does that make me a better photographer without first living with a scene? Then I have a better idea on where to go with the pp.
    I don't even know what was the best photos from this shoot, these where just random ones that give an idea of what the light was like at various times.

    wooo that was deeeeep
    God made two great lights; the sun to rule by day and the moon to rule by night. He also made the stars.
    And He set them all in the heavens to give light upon the earth; And God saw that it was good.

    Ive seen the light and it is indeed very good

    @ wirehunt: couldn't agree with you more. Most of my stuff hangs around for months, unless I've taken them for someone else who wants them quickly. Then, out comes the software for tweaking and tuning.
    Nikon D80, Nikon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, Nikon 35mm f/1.8G, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 older screw-type, Nikon 70-300VR f/4.5-5.6G. Various filters and grads, elderly Velbon tripod (finger biter).

    Fine, let it hang round for months , I dont see the problem with that.

    For me out of camera raw is only part of the job, and I wont show something half done, even if processing is relativly simple and quick.

    I understand that Rob, for me though all we ever seem to see is the final product when it comes to photos. It doesn't scare me showing negatives.....

    You could always add these to the "Before and After Editing" thread after you get round to processing them too.

    Thanks for posting them.
    They inspired me to get up at 04:00 this morning and head up to Moeraki, about an hour away (perhaps a wee bit longer officer).
    Tide was just about at the top, so I only got a few shots (have you any idea how scary having all your gear out with waves breaking over yer knees)

    Anyway, thanks again, my shots are nowhere as good as yours, but it has given me something to work on.

    I left at about 7 ish and I reckon it was just about on the turn.

    I was up to my knees and don't mind admitting that I was sh1tting meeself if a big wave came in and I lost all my gear.

    I have to say though, it is the 1st time I have had a paddle at dawn and it was kinda cool. I must be going native

    here are a couple of mine (some minor fiddling and a crop on the 1st one)





    Bumped into a real nice guy (fellow photoG), Ian ( didn't catch his second name), he has a gallery up in Roxburgh, although he is opening up a shop in Palmerston.
    Had a good wee chinwag and he made me a cuppa in his new gallery.
    So if it was anyone on the forum, cheers for the tea and crackers and hope to catch up with you next week in Roxburgh.

    Great shots Mike. I like how you get the foreground exposed properly rather than having the rocks as silhouettes. Do you use GND filters?

    Here's one I took last year. I found it really hard to isolate a group of boulders for a decent composition - I think this place is much more tide-dependent than regular beaches as it determines which boulders you can shoot. So not a great composition, but we got a great sunrise!

    Great shot Chris. Very tide-dependent. I think the best combination would be sunrise and midway between high and low tide.

    For these shots I used a Lee 3 stop GND filter.

    Spot on Mike, bastard rocks. The reason to get the tide about then is so you can get at the front of the rocks with some light on them, if the tides to far in all you can get is that bloody outline. When it's right out there is just to much junk around the place. That is unless you've got a wetsuit, and even then the rocks would be hiding under the waves
